OCTEON® II CN62XX Processors

OCTEON® II CN62XX Multi-Core MIPS64 Processors


The OCTEON® II CN62XX family of Multi-Core MIPS64 Internet Application Processors targets mainstream, high-volume applications in enterprise routers, switches, control plane applications, appliances, 3G/4G basestations, and intelligent storage and server adapters. The family includes four software and pin-compatible processors, with two to four cnMIPS64 v2 cores at up to 1.0GHz speed on a massively integrated SoC that includes the latest SERDES-based I/O’s including PCIe Gen2, XAUI, and sRIO, along with Cavium’s most advanced third-generation application hardware acceleration. CN62XX processors deliver over 6Gbps application performance.

The CN62XX provides a cost optimized integration for Wimax/3G/4G/LTE wireless base station platforms, providing up to 4GHz of compute with 1MB L2 cache, DDR3 memory controller, security acceleration for SNOW 3G and KASUMI, TCP/IP packet processing acceleration, and QoS.

Additional acceleration for HFA pattern matching for deep packet inspection, along with the richest set of encryption/decryption support enables highly integrated services switches, routers, and appliances.

Optimized control plane processing solutions are enabled with high-frequency cores up to 1.0GHz, large L1 and L2 caches, and up to 100Gbps of DDR3 DRAM bandwidth. CN62xx is supported by industry-standard software tool chains and operating systems and is fully hardware and software compatible with CN63xx.
